Midwife Baby Blanket
You're going to want to bookmark this Call the Midwife baby blanket pattern for future gifts!
You are going to fall in love with this Call the Midwife blanket! Inspired by the British BBC (aired on PBS in the US) TV show, Call the Midwife, this timeless crochet baby blanket is a nice pattern to crochet for babies.
A lightweight white yarn is used, which means it's also a perfect christening blanket to give as a homemade gift. This crochet baby blanket measures about 30 by 35 inches, but the size is easy to adjust by adding or subtracting from your starting chain.
It's a surprisingly simple afghan to crochet, despite the lacy design. Make this for your next baby shower or to donate to the preemies at your local hospital. The delicate and vintage style is still loved by modern mothers and will keep the newborn warm and happy.

As beautiful as this is, it's not suitable for preemies because of the lace design. I am definitely going to have to try to make one of these though!

Well! This tv show has got babies, British people, IN London, and it is set in the 1950's. If I don't start watching this show now, I know I am going to be missing out! Look at how precious the babies are all wrapped up in the heirloom blankets! She managed to come up with a design that looks just like a blankie from the show. Now that is talent!

Call the Midwife is one of my favorite shows (thank goodness for Netflix)! Its set in a time when handmade baby goods were the fashion and I often find myself pausing the video to get a better look at a blanket or bonnet. This blanket is from one of my favorite Christmas episodes. I love how the lacy work mimics filet crochet, too. It would be fantastic if the show put out a booklet of patterns, but Im sure theyre using actual vintage items, not reproductions.

I adore making things for babies. There is never a lack of patterns for them. In my opinion, this one when given to a new mom will easily become a family heirloom.

Each time I see the Midwife blanket, I think I have to make this beautiful and soon. Well, today is the day. There is something very special about this little blanket. This is an heirloom gift that will be passed down, if it doesn't become a very loved blanket

This Midwife Baby Blanket design is beautiful. The design sort of reminds me of filet crochet. I read thru the instructions, but until I work thru the design can't be sure if they are one in the same. No matter, this is most definitely a keeper. Always a good thing to have a blanket on hand for baby showers.

I have finished two baby blankets in multicolors and they came out so beautiful. I am so excited with my two initial projects Now, I guess I'm ready to do a vintage piece and this Midwife Baby Blanket is a fine candidate. I want to do this a christening gift again, maybe make it bigger for a big baby or for an elderly.

I really like this Midwife Baby Blanket. I've never seen the show but wow it's beautiful. The pattern is so easy and I like the idea of making one for a christening. I have a few to do in a short time and this looks like it will go quickly. Also a nice summer time cover up. Thank you so much for this free crotchet pattern.

My mother made this blanket for my babies over 30 years ago! And yes, she was a midwife, working in Scotland, not long after the series was made. She had the pattern from then. So it really is a 'midwives blanket'!

Beautiful pattern but absolutely not for a baby-look at all those holes! Perhaps for a toddler or a wall hanging.
